Blackberry, blueberry, and a bit of cherry rise up from the glass. Blueberry and cherry, fresh and candied, lead on the palate. More depth, with bramble and leather, come out on the mid-palate. Tannins and mouth-feel are round and opulent. Drink with duck. Recommended. 88 points. DBH

About The Author

David Honig

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
